By: Alex Dolson
Background on Nepal
 Nepal is a small country located between India and China
 Nepal is home to Mt. Everest
 Nepal has a population of approximately 27 million people
 Nepal is a geographically diverse country containing
mountains, forests and grasslands
 Nepal is a country with two seasons the wet and the dry
season
Government and Geography of
Nepal
 The president of Nepal Is Aditya Raj Upadhyaya
 The Nepalese government is set up on Federal Democratic
republic system
 Three main land regions
 Terai (plains)
 Hill regions
 Mountain Region
Export Idea
 Nepal is a country that has a developing agricultural industry
 One of the biggest challenges Nepalese livestock farmers
face is making quality forage throughout the entire year
 This issue could be solved by storing forage from the wet
season for use in the dry season
 This is why Canada should export Ag baggers and Ag Silage
film to Nepal
Transportation
 The Ag- Bag machine could be shipped from the Ag-Bag
manufacturing plant in Wisconsin directly to Nepal
 The plastic wrap could be exported by the company
Canadian Hay and silage limited which is based in Alberta
and already distributes products to Asia
Canadian Companies
 The company Canadian Hay and Silage ltd could export the
Ag silage film from their headquarters in Alberta
 The company Ag bag could export the actual machine used
for storing the forage which will be shared between farmers
in a community
 Both of these companies already export products overseas
so exporting to Nepal would not be difficult
Benefits to Canada
 Canada would benefit from exporting products from these
companies
 By creating jobs
 Increasing Revenue
 Improving trade relations with Nepal
 Increasing the possibility of other agricultural exports to
Nepal in the future
Benefits to Nepal
 Nepal will benefit from this trade deal by
 Improving feed quality and increasing yield from animals
 Nepal will also be able modernize their agricultural industry
by adapting new technologies
 Nepalese farmers will be able to store feed more efficently
and saving labour
Conclusions
 Nepal is a developing country with a promising agricultural
industry that could easily adapt modern technologies to
improve efficiency and yield
 This trade deal could potentially improve trade relations
between Canada and Nepal and could increase exports to
Nepal from Canada
 This trade deal will benefit both Canada and Nepal by
increasing profits and improving the lives of both Canadians
and Nepalese people
